I had planned to go to another restaurant nearby with my daughter for Sunday dinner but there was a long wait so thought we would try this place. Friendly staff got us a table straight away. Carvery was fresh and more than enough for me. Good selection of veg although I was surprised at lack of peas and carrots. My... More

This evening my wife and I decided to go to "The Sheldon" for tea , I had the traditional carvery and my wife the steak and ale pie, the food was good quality and hot!! The pub offer 50% off food only for January which was an added bonus.

Went on bank holiday Monday for tea and had two carveries. They weren't very nice. The veg were mushy, roasties were like bricks as they had been there that long and the meat was dried up. The 'real meat' gravy was also questionable. The staff were pleasant enough but sadly, the food was horrible. Don't think I'll be going again.

We had booked a table for 12 people, and arrived to find we had not 1 table for 12, but 4 small tables in close proximity. Not an ideal start, but with some rearranging we made it work. We were then told that the pub had run out of bacon and would be using gammon with the breakfasts instead. Again,... More

Positive.. the serving ladies seemed concerned about my glum face and offered help. Negative.. the lad serving carvery meat was totally disinterested in any sort of customer relations, or even doing his job. The food.. The cauliflower cheese wasn't bad. The beef was destroyed some hours(Days?) earlier. The chicken likewise. The gammon was edible. This was Friday night 7pm, surely... More
